A mature field that's helped fuel the nation's economic activity for more than 100 years, the Appalachian Basin spans sections of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Maryland and New York. Marcellus/Utica daily production has skyrocketed over the last six years, producing 23.8 BCFD (up from just 7.8 BCFD in 2012). And that means a much greater demand for gas processing equipment that can handle high production throughput. In addition, the region's hilly topography means well pad access and size are limited by the available real estate. Multi-well pads have helped make the most of these small footprint wells while increasing production.
High Volume and Pressure
The region's multi-well pass produce high pressures that can be hard on commodity separation equipment. But Worthington separators are built for the challenge.
With the hilly terrain and difficult surface access in areas, a more intense and compact well pad separation equipment design can help make the most of the well pad.
Infrastructure Build Out
Appalachian natural gas is expected to help push U.S. production to record levels. More efficient well pad processing and large-capacity storage can help get to market more quickly.
